COAS Lagbaja charges Nigerian Army to recalibrate its strength, defeat adversaries

In a resolute address at the closing of the Combined Second and Third Quarters COAS (Chief of Army Staff) Conference, Lt.-Gen. Taoreed Lagbaja, the Chief of Army Staff, has imparted a crucial directive to operational commanders within the Nigerian Army. He emphasized the need for these commanders to recalibrate their strategies to deliver precise and scientifically sound blows to the nation’s adversaries.

Speaking during the conference’s conclusion in Abuja, Lt.-Gen. Lagbaja acknowledged the challenging nature of the tasks at hand, as highlighted by the briefings and discussions of the commanders. He underscored the Nigerian Army’s competence and unwavering commitment to fostering collaboration with sister services and other security agencies. This synergy aims to create a conducive environment for good governance and economic prosperity in the nation.

The COAS emphasized that displaying any form of weakness is not an option, as adversaries are emboldened by perceived weaknesses. He called upon the Nigerian Army to adapt and strengthen its capabilities to deliver precise and scientific blows to both internal and external adversaries. The decisions reached during the conference discussions will serve as a blueprint for refining training and operational activities to achieve desirable outcomes.

Lt.-Gen. Lagbaja highlighted that the COAS Conference provided an invaluable platform for the army’s top leadership to brainstorm, evaluate the army’s performance throughout the year, and review training, operational, and administrative activities related to critical security issues within Nigeria and its external environment. Formation commanders responsible for various operations across the country’s geopolitical zones presented their insights during the conference.

Furthermore, Lt.-Gen. Lagbaja assured President Bola Tinubu and the nation that the Nigerian Army is resolutely committed to defending Nigeria’s thriving democracy and upholding the constitution. He reaffirmed the army’s dedication to setting a positive example for other armies to follow.

As a gesture of recognition and support for the families of personnel who made the ultimate sacrifice in defending the nation, some Next-of-Kins received cheques as payment for Group Life Insurance claims of the deceased. This initiative underscores the importance of honoring those who have given their lives in the service of their country.
